POSTPONED – Holiday 4 Heroes Event to be Held at Alliant in San Diego

Event Postponed

Due to increased interest in this event from additional sponsors, as well as a desire to include more of the Wounded Warriors who have benefited from the ChoiceCenter Personal Development and Leadership program, this event is being postponed for the spring of 2014. This will allow for more time to plan and for more of our heroes to participate. More info will come when the new date is planned.

A message about Wounded Warriors from Alliant Student Lorie J. Teagno, Ph.D.

The goal of our project, Wounded Warriors: Post Traumatic Stress Survivors, is to investigate a specific training approach, the ChoiceCenter Personal Development and Leadership program.  This is an experiential program that has produced effective results for more than 35 years in the lives of civilians and service members alike.  Many veterans and service members have completed the program on their own, and as a result, have experienced numerous benefits such as prolonged personal success, stability, and mental well-being. These positive self-reported results have encouraged us to develop our own systematic research strategy to support the results of the program representing an economical and effective approach that may have long-lasting effects for these service members.

Our project is being supported by the USO office in Washington, DC. They have donated $14,000 towards our $100,000 goal.  We have also received funding from private individuals who support our patriots.  Our study begins on September 20, 2013 and continues into 2015 as we send service members through the program and measure the effects of the experience on their levels of stress, depression, and outlook on life before, during and up to one year after completing the ChoiceCenter program.

If desired, donations can be made directly to Wounded Warriors.
